Forewarning: We have taken a very different approach to weight loss than other weight loss programs. This page explains WHY?
“IF YOU DO WHAT YOU’VE ALWAYS DONE, YOU’LL GET WHAT YOU’VE ALWAYS GOTTEN”
Sustainable weight loss WITHOUT long and hard workouts, complicated diets or giving up ANY of your favorite foods. Impossible, you think? Well, how are the healthy regions around the world able to maintain their good health and weight? You don’t see them worry about their diet or doing any strenuous workouts. So obviously there is a way, which I have discovered and I teach with this system. You will be surprised how simple and easier it is to lose weight and get in shape when you go with human nature and not against it.
Which Is The Best Weight Loss Program?
The best weight loss program is the one you can live with. If you can’t live with whatever changes a weight loss program suggests in order to lose weight and get in shape, whatever results you achieve with that program, will be temporary at best.
Think about it. Why do most people regain the weight back after they lose it? They gain the weight back because they stopped taking whatever actions they took to lose weight.
So, the real question is why do most people stop taking the actions that got them in shape? I am sure it was not because they didn’t enjoy having a lean and healthy body and I am also sure it is not because they are lazy or don’t have their priorities straight like most fitness professionals believe. Once we know the answer to this question we can figure out what to do about it.
Why Most People Quit Their Efforts to Lose Weight
There is a very simple explanation as to why most people stop taking the actions they took to lose weight and get in shape, and it has little to do with the motivation or willpower of the individual. It has to do with the way most weight loss programs approach weight loss.
Let me explain why I put most of the blame on the weight loss programs and not the people?
As you might already know, humans are creatures of habit. According to cognitive neuroscience, 95% of your daily actions and thoughts are controlled by your subconscious mind. In other words, 95% of your daily actions and thought are habitual behaviors. Only around 5% of your daily actions and thoughts are controlled by your conscious mind. This makes perfect sense because our subconscious mind has almost, unlimited processing power, whereas our conscious mind is very limited. Getting our subconscious mind to run most of our daily tasks frees our conscious mind to focus on the important stuff, like enjoying life.
If you look at how healthy regions around the world are maintaining their good health and weight you will notice that all the healthy actions they take that contribute to their good health, are habitual actions. They don’t consciously think they need to eat more vegetables, or that they must take a walk or whatever else they do that keeps them in shape. All those things are habitual behaviors. Basically, through their traditions, they have trained their subconscious mind to take over all those actions, which frees up their conscious mind to enjoy life. In other words, their fitness program is on autopilot. Would you love a weight loss program that is on autopilot? I know I would.
Now, if you look at how all of the popular weight loss and diet programs approach weight loss, none of them help you develop habitual behaviors. As a matter of fact, many of the things they ask you to do in order to lose weight, you could not make habitual even if you wanted too, like counting calories, measuring your food or those over the top crazy workouts.
Basically, all the popular weight loss and diet programs rely on people’s willpower and motivation to stick with their fitness plan. In other words, they rely on the conscious mind for the implementation of their program. As I said before your conscious mind is very limited and can only focus on one thing at a time. So, if you have to plan your meals every day, that means you take the focus away from other fun stuff that are happening during the day. If you are counting calories, you take the focus away from simply enjoy a nice meal. Basically, with the current methods of weight loss, you have to choose between having a lean and healthy body or enjoying life but you can’t have both.
Just look at that 5% of the people who are able to keep the weight off with the current methods of weight loss. They are constantly focusing on what they can eat, how much should they eat, when they can fit in their workouts. Basically, their diet and workouts have become their life with very little room for anything else. Most people are not willing to do that and I don’t blame them because I am not willing to do that either.
So, can you now see why most weight loss programs fail to help people achieve sustainable weight loss?
Habits are the Key to Sustainable Weight Loss
Now that we know the reason why most people quit their efforts to lose weight and get in shape, let see what can we do to ensure that people stick with the actions that got them in shape.
The answer is very simple. Since humans are creatures of habit and our conscious mind is already overwhelmed with things it needs to do, the best solution for sustainable weight loss is to make habitual all the actions necessary for weight loss and health. This way we will not need to rely on our conscious mind to take those actions that keep us in shape. Our new habitual behaviors will keep us in shape automatically, just like in the healthy regions around the world.
This is the biggest difference between the Live Your Way Thin System and all other weight loss approaches. With the Live Your Way Thin System you will not just learn what you need to do in order to lose weight and improve your health. You will also learn how to make habitual all the things you need to do in order to lose weight and improve your health.
How the Live Your Way Thin System Works
The Live Your Way Thin System is very different from most other weight loss programs on the market today. You will learn things about proper nutrition and health that none of the popular weight loss programs or diets teach.
You see, I was raised on a Greek island in a very healthy region, where people lived long healthy lives free from most of the diseases people suffer from these days and thin was the norm. The way we lived and ate in Greece, at the time I lived there, completely contradicted many of the popular advice that most fitness professionals give to people about weight loss and health. What made it even more interesting is that when I studied other healthy regions around the world, they had more in common with the way I was raised in Greece, than what I was taught in all my schooling.
My upbringing gave me a unique perspective that very few fitness professionals have. That unique perspective helped me identify 8 fundamental behaviors essential for weight loss and great health. Half of these healthy behaviors most diet and weight loss programs don’t teach. This is part of the reason why we are losing the weight loss battle.
With the Live Your Way Thin System you will not just learn about these 8 fundamental behaviors, but through a simple step by step process, you will make all 8 behaviors, habitual behaviors and part of your everyday life. Remember, you can’t rely on willpower or motivation to stick to the new behaviors. You must make the new behaviors habitual if you want results for life and that is exactly what the Live Your Way Thin System will help you do.
The life-changing step by step process that we use to help our clients make habitual these 8 fundamental behaviors, is based on the Kaizen method. The Kaizen method, it’s probably the best system for making lasting changes in your lifestyle habits.
It’s a simple yet extremely effective transformation technique that can help you make change inevitable. It has been used by major corporations, business leaders and highly successful people to achieve amazing and lasting results. I have incorporated the same philosophy into my Live Your Way Thin System so I can help my client make habitual the 8 behaviors, which are essential for weight loss and great health.
What Healthy Behaviors We Will Help You Make Habitual
The first behavior you will be learning has to do with becoming more active. Becoming more active is not just about exercising, although exercising is part of it. It’s about adding more activities to your everyday life and make those activities habitual behaviors just like brushing your teeth or combing your hair. You will be surprised how much more activity you can add to your everyday life without taking any more time out of your day.
The remaining 7 behaviors you will be learning from our Live Your Way Thin System have to do with proper nutrition. This is where we differ greatly from other weight loss program. Most programs only focus on the foods you eat or don’t eat. Did you know that how you eat is as important to your health and weight as what you eat? This is something that none of the popular weight loss programs teach. Here is a proven fact: The same exact food can affect your weight and health differently depending on, how you ate it, when you ate it and how you were feeling when you ate it.
With the Live Your Way Thin System we will be teaching you 4 specific behaviors that have to do with how you should be eating for best health and weight loss. These 4 healthy “how to eat” behaviors you will find in all healthy regions around the world.
By the way, we don’t believe people need to eat perfectly to lose weight and get in shape. We believe in the 80/20 rule. If you eat the right food the right way 80% of the time, your body will forgive you for the 20% of the time that you don’t.
Remember, if you constantly have to think in order to do the right thing for your health and weight, you will not last. The only way to ensure that you stick with a new behavior long term is to make that behavior a habitual behavior. This is why we take extra care to make sure you make habitual all the behaviors we will be teaching you.
The Live Your Way Thin System is not just about weight loss, it's about sustainable weight loss and great health.
